VGA Video Monitor

By rdendy - Posted on 11 March 2013

I want to add a Monitor to the front of my boat to be able to view my HB 1198 si which is mounted on the console. Having to turn around is a pain in the neck (Literally)I have been some research and know I will need the VC-1 cable from humminbird. I was wondering if anyone else has done this and any suggestion on type to get?

Well I put the wrong connection. It's actually a RCA connection. I had VGA on the brain for some reason.

I have not tried to add a VGA monitor yet but I have ready reviews that said the video quality was not good. I may try it myself in the next week or so.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
